The way politics,today plays out and the politicians behave, it seems that politics is inherently bad.But can the society not be worse without politics?Yes,it will be.Our civilisation has not yet evolved to a stage where policiations and politics can be discarted.Politicians are the necessary evil.Instead of discarding the science of politics,it has to be reformed.Political reform has to be brought about on the pattern of other reforms.

Improvements in the political system need to be brought on two fronts.One by enacting laws and strengthening judicial system,and other by building up character of politicians.Of course,much headway has been achieved on legal reformation,but nothing concrete has been done on character-building.There has been constant deterioration in character of politicians over a period of time.Concentration of immense power at the hands of politicians,has made them autocratic.It gives them leeway to do whatever they want to do.Quite recently, growing cases of arbitrariness,corrupt practices,discriminatory treatments at the hands of those in political power has risen by leaps and bound giving bad name to politics and politics.What politicians lack badly today,is character, Character has to be built up.

No; politics are not inherently good or bad, however the politicians involved may be good or bad. Franklin Roosevelt, for example, led the United States of out the Depression and then (with Winston Churchill), led the war effort that defeated the Germans and Japanese in WW2. One of their opponents was Germany's popularly-elected politician Adolph Hitler, who is a clear example of inherently evil politics.

Is politics a necessary evil?

This question implies that politics is a negative thing. Politics is the function of governance, how policy is determined with a state. It is a process, it is not inherently good or bad. That said, there is a negative connotation with the term politics, as, for an American audience, it reminds us of the sense of partisan political deadlock that seemingly prevents us from adequately addressing our problems. If we assume that we are in a state of partisan deadlock, and we take it that this is a bad thing, it could be viewed that this is not actually politics, but the prevention of politics, as it prevents policy makers from doing their actual jobs.
